America's Best Rose Garden is Now in San Jose, CA

I wrote a travel article for of the different historic mansions and gardens located on the San Francisco peninsula and south bay for travelers to visit.  In the article, I mentioned one must see garden was the San Jose Municipal Garden, which is an actual tour stop on my group tours of San Jose.

Today, the fabulous news was announced that this Rose Garden was awarded America's Best Rose Garden by All-America Rose Selections (AARS).  Thank you to the community work and support of over 3,000 volunteers to make this happen.  The garden has always been an amazing place - now is a definite place to stop and enjoy the roses!
